This year SLB had the exciting experience of instructing a "Storytelling Through Technology" class at University Prep-Pittsburgh Milliones. Students gained experience with microphones, portable recording devices, and audio editing software. They also learned the art of the interview as well as how audio can be used as a tool to further their understanding of the world around them. During the year students used these acquired skills to interview their teachers and create professional radio pieces.
Twenty students about to enter their first year of college created these nine radio documentaries as part of their position as Summer Interns at The Heinz Endowments.
